No Fat Old Fashioned Apple Cake

Recipe by senseicheryl

Here is a recipe that I found on the website. "Sure, 100 years ago it was ok to bake with lard, but in our modern times we've wizened up to the scary truth of fat. This cake has the same spicy taste of that 100-year old recipe… but without the fat."

Delicious snack cake!!!! This smelled so great while baking and it rose really high and fluffy! Plus, it was really moist!!! You don't miss the fat in this cake, the buttermilk moistens it up well and the apples and raisins are in each bite!! I used Granny Smith apples and the only thing I added was more brown sugar to the top so it would cover the whole cake, about 2 1/2 TBSPs instead of the one. Love this recipe, thanks!!!!
